This week the school allowed us to discover something new, for the first time we had the possibility to discover something more about the lives of artists like Fernando Pessoa, Eça de Queirós and Manuel Bocage; for once, instead of reading books about their lives, we have had the chance to find out what they used to do in their daily life, having the opportunity to visit the more ancient Cafés of the city of Lisbon. We started our tour in Praça do Rossio, where we had the possibility to go inside the famous café Nicola, while discovering more about the history behind it, thanks to our teacher Beatriz. After having seen Nicola's café we went to the other historic café "A Brasileira", where it is possible to admire the statue of Fernando Pessoa.
We went then to Praça do Comercio in order to finish our tour at Martinho da Arcada where we saw the table in which Fernando Passoa used to take his coffe speaking with his friends of the Portuguese vanguard. We had really great time together during this tour and we are really looking forward to know where will be the one of next week.
